The morphology and infraciliature of the marine hypotrichous ciliate Holosticha nagasakiensisi sp. nov. from the coastal waters of Nagasaki, Japan are described based on living and protargol-impregnated specimens. The new species is characterized by: medium-sized marine Holosticha, in vivo 100-150×30-40 µm with elongated body shape and slightly greyish to reddish cell colour; cortical granules arranged in conspicuously longitudinal rows; 24-32 adoral membranelles; ~20 midventral cirral pairs and 7-10 transverse cirri; 28-42 left and 25-38 right marginal cirri; constantly 4 frontal cirri and 3 dorsal kineties; 23-63 macronuclear nodules.
